bit of nostalgia there for me.

i spent about 7 years making and stretching screens for screen printing in the uk and here in spain.

the smallest screens we made were 40mmx40mm, the biggest were 4+ meters x 3 meters, either aluminium or steel (occasionally stainless) depending on the application.

they had a client here who needed small screens with 180 mesh stretched to 28 newtons, but didn´t think it could be done, so i designed and set up a system that could handle it.

it was still running when i got laid off.
